Rapid Fhotographlo Printings A novel method of rapid photographio printing has been introduced by Mr. Frieso Green of London. Mainly, his plan is to use negatives which have been taken up on a nexioie, translucent ma terial, such as a thin sheet of cellu' loid, placing this sheet upon a sup porting glass cylinder, so that tho sheet bearing tho negative surrounds tho cylinder, and within tho . latter aro one or more lamps. Over or un der the cylinder, and in contract with the celluloid sheet, a band of sensitized material from a roll is carried, ana so say contact part of the band is maintained taut. Rotary motion is given to tho cylinder and for ward motion at the samo surface speed to the band, with the result that every section of the band equal to the circum- ferenco of the cylinder has printed upon it by means of tho light a poeitivo ini pressiou from the negative on the cylin der, the samo picture being produced on every successive section oi me Dana. On leavincr tho cylinder, tho band is carried to and through fixing anddevel- nnini? baths, or. if it be required to print upon both sides cf tho band, it goes from tho first cylinder to a second and similar cylinder, wnere it isprmira in like manner upon its second side, and then passes on to tho fixing and develop ing baths.

He says: The population of tho united colo nies during the Revolutionary war has been estimated at about 3,000,000. Tho present population of Cuba is given at About 1,500,000. As at least 500,000 of these aro Spaniards, who are either non- combatants or are actually assisting Spain, it will bo seen that the popula tion of the colonics in rebellion against Great Britain was about three times the present population of Cuba in rebel lion against Spain. 1 "The following extract from the cor respondence of John Adams, written in December, 1809, will bo read with in terest as showing the forces against which our Revolutionary forefathers contended. Ho nays : '' Great Britain, in our Revolution ary war, never bad in north America, including the Canadas, at any ono time more than five and twenty thousand men. During some part of the war I thought they had 40,000, but upon ex amining their most authentic docu ments and .memorials I havo long set tled an opinion that they never exceed ed 25,000.' Mr. Sparks, who takes his figures from tho stato papers, gives the number moro exactly as follows: June, 1777, 20,957; August, 1778, 34,004; May, 1779, 27,608; August, 1780, 27,913; May, 1781, 28,127; June, 1782, 39,029, or an average of not quito 30,000 men for each of tho years named. On tho other hand, I havo never seen the numuer or bpanisn troops in Cuba stated at less than 200,000, to say nothing of the lo, 000 or 20,000 Span ish Cuban volunteers or militia. To properly appreciate, therefore, the enor mous disparity between tho number of troops sent by Great Britain to subju gate America and tho number sent Ly Spain to conquer tho Cuban patriots wo should contrast tho figures ai follows: Cuban patriot population 1,000,000 Spanish troop M).wu American pntriot population 8,000,000 Lrltish troops 80,000 "But historians have everywhere con ceded that without tho assistance ot France the American patriots would have failed in their strugglo for inde pendence. What, then, would have been tho outcome had Great lint am seni against her colonies in rebellion COO, 000 troops? This wonld have been tho num ber our forefathers would have had to contend against, and that, too, without tho aid cf France, if wo contrast the situation in Cubj today with that of tho American colonies during the Revo lution.

Topic Ihohh from Solomon' lifu and wrltiDtrx. I King lii, 6-15. Solomon was tho youngest son cf David, the king of Israel. His name meant "the peaceful one," probably given becanso David was a man of war and desired quiet and peace for his sou. Solomon was born and Toared in Jerusa lem. His mother was Bathsheba, the widow of Uriah, tho Hittito. Until Ab- Balom's death he was the favorito son of David and tho destined heir to tho throne. At his death Solomon succeed ed to the vacant placo in his 'father's heart, and David promised Bathsheba that at his death Solomon should bo come the king. Solomon was raised un der the influences of his father and Na than, the prophet. He was educated in a manner fitting his position and his fu ture destiny as king. When David was old and feeble, Adonijah, Solomon's older brother, attempted to usurp the throne, but his plot miscarried, and Sol omon was anointed king at Gihon. His father soon died, and he then became the sole occupant of the throne. Solo mon reigned for 42 years over Israel, and in his reign the kingdom reached its most splendid position among na tives. Never before or since has it equaled the splendor of Solomon's time. Royalty from far and near came to be hold the magnificence of Israel and catch the words of wisdom that fell from Israel's king. His principal work was the building of the temple. He also built . for himself a magnificent royal palace. But his life was marred by his union with heathen wifes and his gross idolatry, which resulted from such mar riages. Solomon was a prolific writer. "He spake 8,000 proverbs, and hfa songs wero a thousand and five" (I Kings iv, 82). We have only a few of his 8,000 proverbs and none of his songs. Much may be learned from the life and writ ings of Solomon that should be instruct ive and beneficial. Learn 1. A lesson on wisdom. Solomon was a wise man the wisest of men. Where did bo get wisdom? From God. Why? Because he desired it above everything else, that he might do his life work properly. How did he use it? For the formation of a splendid nation and the betterment of the human race. We all need wisdom. Let us seek it earnestly of God, that we may do the work of life, and when obtained let us use it for Christ and humanity. 2. v A lesson on folly. Solomon was a good preacher, but a poor practicer. It seems paradoxical, and yet the wisest of men was one of the most foolish of men. As a poet he could see the charms and beauties of life, as a philosopher the wisdom of virtue and the folly of vice, but as a man ho failed to be benefited by what he saw. Let us be warned by his example and his fate. Bible Readings. I Kings i, 50-53 ; iv, 29-34; vi, 1-14; viii, 1-14, 22-26; ix, 25; xi, 1-13; Proverbs, Songs of Soh mon and Ecclesiates.

People in general cannot understand he doings of a student of nature. Es fecially quite ignorant persons are apt to conclude, when told that the objects cf his search are fossils or minerals, that under this explanation is concealed the purpose of, securing some buried treasure, for that is the only thing that would induce them to dig. Mr. A. L. Adams relates an amusing instance of this reasoning. While excavating a large cavern on the southern coast of Malta we had dug a trench in the soil on its floor some six feet in depth in quest of organic re mains. The natives in tho vicinity, hearing of our presence, came in num bers daily to witness the proceedings, interrogating the workmen with refer ence to the object of our researches, of which the workmen were about as ig norant as themselves. One afternoon three stalwart fellows paid us a visit, and while they sat on the heap of dirt staring down into the dark ditch below I dropped a Spanish dollar on a shovelful of earth, and the next moment it lay with the soil on the heap. Picking it up in a careless manner, I put it into our luncheon bag, and a few minutes afterward our friends disappeared, muttering to one another as they went. Great was our amusement the next morning to find that our trench had been carried fully four feet below the level we had gained on the' previous evening. Not only that; several other excellent sections of the floor had been made by the natives in expectation of finding buried treasure. Youth's Companion. London Harbor Shops. An interesting featuroof the east end barber shops is the rack of pigeonholes filled with shaving mugs, each bearing, usually in German text, the name of the owner. The shaving mug is evident ly esteemed a valuable advertising me dium, for many a mug bears, in addi tion to the owner's name, some emblem of his business. The undertaker puts on his mug the picture of a richly appoint ed hearse, with all tho proper trappings of woo. Tho butcher decorates his mug with shoulders of .mutton, pigs' heads and linked sausagos. The dentist dis plays tho traditional double row of on noyingly perfect teeth. The fireman's mni? hears tho illuminated picture or a fire engine. Vain and handsomo men adorn their cups with photographs of themselves. Others placo beneath their names some inscription a sentiment from the poets or an old German rhymo of good cheer. A child's photograph occasion- ullv appears on a shavinu mug. and now nud then a roat of arms is em blazoned abovo tho owner's name, for poats of arms aro us abundant in tho east end as elsewhero in town.
